Maanga Group's story

Habibou is the representative of the Maanga group and is very well. She is married and mother to four children, the eldest of whom is 18 years old and the youngest seven. All her children go to school now and she has four dependents.

She has been selling "pagnes" and flatware for the past seven years. She gets her supplies from the Sector 10 market in town and her customers are friends and neighbors. She would like to buy 20 sets of pagnes and 30 sets of flatware.

She saves her profits so that she can help with the children's education. Her ambition is to open a large shop for her business and contribute to the construction of a house.
